The Trax will arrive to a portion of the market that’s just starting to take off.

The upcoming (alleged) 2015 Honda HR-V should offer up impressive fuel efficiency with some of the Honda Fit’s Magic Seat interior-packaging goodness.

At the other end of the spectrum is the Jeep Renegade, which has super-boxy styling and can actually be optioned up to ‘Trail Rated’ off-road capability.

Otherwise, the Subaru XV Crosstrek might be the most carlike of this crowd (it’s essentially a jacked-up Impreza hatchback), and Subaru has made some significant gains in interior refinement and quiet this year.

The MINI Cooper Countryman gets a major refresh for 2015, with a new look as well as significant interior and safety updates; in past model years we’ve found it to be a bit less practical in layout, harsh-riding, and somewhat noisy inside.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Chevrolet Trax will break into uncharted territory for Chevy, and into one of the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. market; with competition heating up, we’re eager to see how much value this tall hatchback ventures in with.
The 2015 Renegade is Jeep’s ace card—a stylish, affordable small crossover that carries on the brand’s rugged mission, but with an eye to the city; it’s chunky, cheeky and doesn’t look cheap.
